Vaginal Rejuvenation or Labiaplasty is an innovative choice for women who are physically and/or emotionally uncomfortable with the size of their labia. Vaginal rejuvenation may be performed to reshape or reduce the size of the labia.
It comes as no surprise that, as we get older, our bodies begin to show signs of aging in our private area. It may even be genetics that gave us an embarrassing private part. Or it could be the result of childbirth. Yes ladies, we are talking about the labia. From underwear discomfort to horseback riding discomfort and bikini embarrassment or inhibited intimacy, a private part that doesn’t make us feel good is disconcerting. Whether you are uncomfortable physically or just don’t like the way it looks, there is no longer a reason you cannot be happier with every part of your body through plastic surgery in the hands of a gifted plastic surgeon.
Labiaplasty is not just for fixing functional impairment; undergoing the procedure for aesthetic reasons alone is acceptable and understandable. In 2008, a study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine reported that 37% of women who underwent labiaplasty did so for aesthetic reasons alone, while 32% did so to correct a functional impairment, and 31% did so to correct a functional impairment and for aesthetic reasons. Today, women do not have to tolerate discomfort in their private area.
